Team building to make an Impact

There has been a shift in the way businesses operate. Companies are more focused on a collaborative workplace instead a competitive environment–the objective is strength in numbers, right? This is where teambuilding activities, essential to a company and its employees, come into place. There are many benefits to hosting teambuilding activities in the workplace. To start, it brings your employees together. In addition to unifying the workplace, it improves productivity, encourages creativity and improves communication, in turn, boosting morale. “Enjoyable, fun activities enable employees to get to know each other, create a better understanding of each other and break down walls of mistrust by encouraging people to focus on what they have in common rather than their differences.” (blog.sodexoengage.com)

Many of companies are looking to be socially conscious and grow their impact. This is where Clean the World comes in! Clean the World offers a unique and engaging team building experience. Hygiene kit building events are a positive and uplifting activity that allow you to support your local community while fulfilling your CSR goals.

“PM Management Group hosted a hygiene kit build in Dallas, TX. Some of their properties are currently participating in the Clean the World recycling program but several of them have never heard of us and were excited to learn more about what we do. They were ecstatic to do the build along with knowing where their donated products were actually going!”

-Patricia Linde, Client Health Manager at Clean the World

As shown in the video above, a hygiene kit features a portable recyclable bag consisting of two bars of new soap, bottles of repurposed shampoo and conditioner, a bottle of lotion, a toothbrush and toothpaste, a razor, a washcloth along with an inspirational notecard. Clean the World takes in all the discarded soap and bottled hygiene amenities from hotels all around the world to be able to assemble these kits. Hygiene kits support the local community benefiting individuals that may not have the financial means to otherwise obtain these hygiene amenities.

In recent years, employers have been searching for ways to keep millennials engaged and attract, hire and retain them successfully. As of 2018, millennials are becoming more philanthropic and want to be more involved in the community for a greater cause and to make a difference. According to a 2015 Cone Communications Millennial CSR Study, “more than 9-in-10 millennials would switch brands to one associated with a cause.”

Companies such as Microsoft, United Airlines, Marriott as well as Hilton have hosted hygiene kit builds, assembling as little as 100 hygiene kits to as many as 60,000 kits! Hilton currently holds the record of building 60,000 hygiene kits in less than an hour in the same location, in no other than San Diego. Organize a hygiene kit build with Clean the World and give the gift of hygiene to individuals in need. Corporate Social Responsibility is paving a way sustainable solution leaving hope in your hands.

Drive for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is important and is becoming more highly demanded by consumers—and we believe this is good news! CSR, a broad term to describe a company’s efforts to make a positive societal impact, is the corporate world’s opportunity to start being about more than just profit.

B corporations like Clean the World take CSR a step further by balancing profit and purpose. They (and we do too!) buy into the idea that it shouldn’t only be non-profits who are making a difference, but businesses too. Of course, there are profit-increasing benefits of CSR too, because better CSR “improves public image, increases media coverage, boosts employee engagement,” and “attracts and retains investors.” For even the purest-intentioned companies, it is ok it acknowledge that CSR can aid corporate success.

Part of the reason why CSR is gaining traction is because consumers are noticing when it happens and making their purchasing decisions accordingly. According to a recent study by Cone Communication, corporations find impact and sustainable CSR programs deliver measurable results and revenue benefits. When a company supports a social or environmental issue, it improves corporate reputation with customers.

Conducting good CSR can start small. Clean the World offers a unique and engaging team building experience that allows you to support your local community while fulfilling your CSR goals. Organize a hygiene kit build and give the gift of hygiene to individuals in need. Though the societal and environmental issues in the world may seem looming, CSR is paving a way for sustainable solutions, leaving Clean the World hopeful about the future.
